    why does anyone buy a big decked walk behind mower when you can buy a JD quicktrack or any other stand on?

    WB's are better on hills.

    Simple answer...versatility, period. BTW, why would anyone want a stand on?

    how are they more versatile? I have a stand on and it gets in and out of tight spots way better then my ZTR

    How does your standon work around trees and on wet lawns. Any problem with tearing up the turf?

    You expect me to believe a stander can go the same places as a WB...nfw. Period

    Anything can get in tighter spots than a Z...that's a given.

    i have to go inbetween 45 decks that have 60 inches of lawn and are 8 feet deep. Yes I will get in and out twice as fast! ( compared to the walk behind I demoed anyway )
    How fast does your WB move backwards?
